Need an estimate of home worth.

Asked by Kimberly, 18509 Thu Aug 2, 2012

I am considering selling my house. How can I determine an estimate of its worth without paying for an appraisal? I did a comparables application on a real estate website but got a very broad range of values. Thank you in advance for any suggestions.

Hi Kimberly - An experienced agent is a great way to find out what your property is worth at no charge. Websites that plug in your property information and give you a number are very often inaccurate since each property is unique (exact location, condition, curb appeal, specific amenities, etc.). Best of luck.

Hi Kimberly,

Are you thinking of selling, refinancing, or just curious as to current value?

Please feel free to call me.

I can perform a complimentary Comparable Marketing Analysis for you.
I will come walkthrough, take pictures and then do the proper research and prepare a Broker's Price Opinion letter for you.

This way we compare apples to apples to derive at a realistic value for your home.

All the best,

The best way to get a value without paying for an appraisal is to have a couple of different agents come over and give you a broker price opinion. They should tell you what it is worth, what price you shold ask and what it would probabily sell for.

You call a Realtor and ask for a CMA on your house. It's free and about as accurate as you can get. Did I mention it is FREE?
